Review: The Asus G751JY-DB72 is one heck of a gaming laptop

Share This article We’ve already covered the Asus G751JY-DB72 laptop indirectly, when we reviewed mobile G-Sync and its impact on frame rates and visual quality earlier this fall. But after spending some time with this laptop, we wanted to do a more thorough review. The G751JY-DB72 isn’t perfect, and its base model has been on the market for well over a year, but don’t let that fool you — this system offers a better price/performance ratio than many more expensive systems that shipped in the past six months. Specs and availability ...
